Synopsis As Introduced
Amends various Acts relating to the governance of public universities in Illinois and amends the Public Community College Act. Requires public institutions of higher education to allow a currently enrolled student who is called to active military service to complete any unfinished courses at a later date at no additional charge, unless course credit has already been given. Provides that the student must be given priority over other students in reenrolling in the course or courses. Effective immediately.

House Committee Amendment No. 1
Provides that the requirement that an institution of higher education allow a student to complete any unfinished courses at no additional charge does not apply if the student received a full refund upon withdrawing from the course, in which case the student's record shall reflect that the withdrawal is due to active military service.

 Fiscal Note (Board of Higher Education)
 No potential fiscal impact to the State. Tuition and fee revenues are locally held and controlled by public universities and community colleges. A December 2001 study by the Board of Higher Education on institutional policies concerning students called to active military service found that while the specific provisions vary by institution, current policies at Illinois public universities and community colleges regarding such students are generally consistent with the requirements set forth in House Bill 4686. Thus, the potential fiscal impact of this bill to Illinois public institutions of higher education likely would be negligible.
